    Bigger brighter combs before other siblings definitely seems boyish to me.

    Too young to be 100%, but it's it's looking cockerel-ish.

    Also you can check the wings. Even feathers means pullet. I know this for a fact because my chicken hatched a baby chick last summer and when it was 6 weeks old I checked the wings.

    His feathers was uneven.

    Feather sexing (wing feather growth) only works with chicks bred for that trait. Otherwise it's random.
